Metal stamping has been on my list of things to try out for a long time. I have owned a set of metal stamps purchased from Harbor Freight for over a year now but just finally got around to using them a couple of months ago. I made necklaces for Christmas gifts for my mother and in-laws. These were a lot of fun and come together fairly quickly so they would aslo be great gifts for Valentine's Day, Mother's Day or anytime you need to whip a a gift for a special girl friend.
My stamp set is 1/8 inch and I used 9mm sterling silver discs. I also used sterling silver chain for these since they were gifts. I purchased my supplies in bulk from Silver City Beads on etsy so I have around $10 invested in each necklace. They can be made for less if you forgo the sterling.
Other supplies included beads, charms, 4mm and 6mm jump rings. This is a great stash busting project if you are already into jewelry making or beading. Adding a bead to your necklace is a great way to use up those random leftover beads.
I used the same beads as the angel earrings in this one below to make a charm.
This one has a dragonfly. This is also a great project to personalize for the recipient. Not only does it have their initial but you can add charms that symbolize things they love or collect. That's what I did with each one of my necklaces.
Thanks for stopping by! Hope you are having a great New Year so far.
